To me it looks so real! LOL. Like I can reach out and touch it. Too bad we can't smell it, David.

I have not a doubt in my mind but what the picture is of the real thing Kell. That was one heck of a clear picture though and juxtaposed to that crisp blue sky made it seem surreal. It was almost 3-D! And yet another one of those pic's that made me think;..."I'll have a bite please;...Those flowers look good enough to eat!"

it looks so cozy for a bee to just snuggle in! the beautiful color really does create such a popping effect with the deep sky.

I agree Coastalzonepush! Blue skies are always so beautiful in photos. I just hate it when the sky looks white in photos. I toss them.
